ロシア, イヴァン・ブラギンスキ, Ivan Braginski
Nations name: Russian Federation Capital: Moscow Language: Russian Birthday: December 30th National flower: Chamomile Human name: Ivan Braginsky Height: 182cm 60 Age: Unknown The largest nation in the world by area Russias a tall character with an intimidating air about him. He comes off as kind and sweet but is actually off his rocker one could say. His hair is light blonde and his eyes are violet but were colored blue in earlier artwork. In the anime adaptation his hair was colored beige. Belarus and Ukraine are his sisters. Ukraine basically raised him and Belarus and was the one that gave him his scarf which is beige in the manga but was colored pink in the anime. Belarus is madly in love with him and wants to marry him. Usually when he thinks about either of them he becomes very depressed afterwards. In the past Russia had control over the Baltic Brothers Lithuania Estonia and Latvia. The three worked in his house and were the subjects of his torment. He especially picked on Latvia whom he teased because of his height. Russia also showed particular interest in Lithuania even forcing him to accompany him on a trip when Lithuania said that he had a date with Belarus that day. As for Russias southern neighbor China he is very suspicious of Russia and afraid of him. Russia constantly says to China that they should become one but China thinks otherwise. On a few occasions Russia has stalked him even dressing up in a panda suit to do so once. His personality is rather twisted though he seems to think that its perfectly normal. He appears purehearted sweet and innocent but he possesses a childlike cruelty. Despite his cheerful smile Russia can be described more or less as insane. Because he suffers from harsh winters every year personified as General Winter he has come to hate the snow and wishes to live in a warm place with sunflowers one day. He loves vodka so much to the point where he shouted VODKA while jumping out of a plane wearing no parachute. Russia has been noted to chant kolkolkol when angry as a threat which was confirmed as being a reference to kolkhoz collective farming in the former Soviet Union. His last name Braginsky is often romanized as Braginski in fandom. The more correct spelling would be Braginsky since last names ending with ski are usually of Polish origin while last names ending in sky are usually of Russian origin.
